This is a shocking reflection on tlio
politicians of Cairo. Tiierc is not a
politician in the city, democrat or re
publican, who would accept a nomina
tion for congress, even with the cer
tainty of election staring him in the
face. Not one.
Popular expectation is not doomed
to be disappointed in Schuyler Colfax.
This gentleman has contrived to make
it known to the public, that noMrli
standing his " no" has been very em
phatic for a year or so, yot if his party
insist on forcing the candidacy of the
vice-presidency on him a second time,
ho is afraid ho cannot find it in his heart
to be so discourteous as to throw tho
nomination back in the teeth of thoso
who offer it. " There is a sweet, pout-
ing simplicity al mt this," says the
New-York Staiuhml, " which does just
1 ioo to tho womanly qualities of Mr.
Colfax's generous nature." Just so.
Is another column wo publish a re
port of the civil scrvico commissioners
tubmitted to Gen. Grant, with his ac
companying message to congress. The
radical press isoverflowing with fulsome
praise of tho president for his prompt
ness in endorsing tho rules laid down
by the commissioners. As his acquies
cenco in them was a foregone conclusion,
it is difficult to see in what respect his
action was meritorious. No ono is pur
prised that he has taken the courso ho
has, but the whole country would have
been taken back if he had signified
disposition to dissent. But the radicals
have a fashion of overwhelming Grant
with flattery on all occasions. If he
tramplos on law. he is a hero if ho
uoes Ins simple duty, lie is tv cort. Late
events have opened the eyes of (ho
people to some extent, however, and
the day is not far distant when Grant
will be judged according to his rea
merits, and not those accorded to him
by blind worshippers.

To the Scmiii'c nml Houso of Itcprcsenlnlltcn :
In accordanco with an net of Congress,
mnrnvnd March 3. 1871. I convened a
commission of eminent gentleman to de
vise rules and regulations for tho purpoio
of roformlng tho civil scrvico. Their la
bors aro now complete, and 1 transmit
hcrowith thoir rouort. together with tho
rules which thoy rccommond for my
action. Tlieso rules havo been adopted
and will go into elect on tho 1st day of
Januarv, iHiZ. unuer ino inw rcicrreu
to, as I interpret It, the authority is
already invested in tho exocutlvo to en
forco tlieso regulations, with full power to
abridge, alter, or amend at his option,
when chances niav bo deemed advisable.
Thcso views, together with tho report of
tho commissioners, nre suomittcu to your
careful consideration, as to whether IU--llier
leglslntion mny bo necessary In order
to enrrv out an onecuvo anu oenciiciai
civil service reform. If left to mo without
furthor congressional action, tho rules pre-
ervntion nirenuv mcnuoncii, win oa iiiiiu-
. . . .... i in I..
fullv oTocutod i but they arc not binding,
without further legislation, on my succes
sors, jioinguesirous oi unnging win suu-
ct to tho nttention of congress beforo tho
nppronching recess, I have not time to
sutllclcntly cxamino tho accompanying rc-
iort, to unauio mo to suggest ino ucul'io
eirlshitlvo action to insuro tho support
which mav bo necessary, in order to civo
a thorough trial to a policy long needed.
I ask for all tho strcneth which concrcss
can give me. to enable mo to carry out tho
reforms in tlio civil servico recommended
nnd adopted by tho commissioners, to tako
etrcct, as befo'ro stated, on Jan. 1, 1872.
Tho law which provides for tho convening
of the commission to ueviso ruicsanu reg
ulations far reforming tho civil service,
authorizes, I think, tho permanent organ
ization ot a prunnrv uoaru, unuer wnoso
eencral directions all examinations of
applicants for public offlco shall be con
ducted. There is no appropriation toenn
tinuo such board bovond tho termination
df its present labors. I thereforo recom
mend that tho proper appropriation uo
mado to continue tho services of tho baard
for another year, and in viow of tho fact
that throe mombers of tho board hold po
sitions Jin tho public servico which pre
cludes tnem from receiving extra compen
sation under tho existing Jaws, that thoy
bo authorized to rccoivo fair compensation
for the extra servico rendered by thorn in
tho performance of tins duty.

Tho late Lord Chesterfield, who died
from typhus fever contracted at tho samo
placo whero tho prlnco of Wales also
caught tho disease, was unmarried nnd
brotlicrles, so that tho titlo will dovolvo
on n collatcrcral rolativo. Uo leaves ono
sister, who is tlio wifo of Lord Carnarvon,
brother of tho lion. Auboron Herbert,
and tocrctary of stato in Lord Dorby's last
cabinet. At tho decease of tho celebrated
Philip Dormer Stanhope, carl of Chester
fluid, author of tho " Letters," tho titlo
passed to his nephew. Tho deceased lord
lad put a special clauso In his will, to tho
ellccl that if his heir ever attempted to let
or sell Chesterfield house, or ever slept at
Xcwmarket whero Lord Cbcsterliold
himself had lost heavily al tho gaming
tablo ho should pay a fine of $'25,000 to
tho dean nnd chapter of Westminster.
His nephew oboyedthis injunction strictly,
and at his death" tho estato amounted to u
clear $200,000. His heir, the father of tho
late lord, ran n wildly extravagant career,
as is well known, and frequently disre
garded tho ancient injunction in "tho will.
Impocuniosity was the result, and tho
present estates have dwindled considerably
from their former magnificence.
